End of the First Act… Unforgettable
CNBLUE, who is a 4 member rock band, and will do major debut with “In My Head” under Warner Music Japan on October 19th, held their last indie live concert on September 25th at Yokohama Arena.

Between flying green laser beams, the four men appeared on round stage, which was at the center of the arena and surrounded by fans in 360-degrees. As soon as they appeared, the 15,000 people filling the seats burst into cheers and got excited.

During the opening tune “The Way part 2 ~Ready N Go~”, stage effects of explosive detonation made audience even more excited at once. Except for drummer Minhyuk (20), the other members, Yonghwa (22), Jonghyun (21), and Jungshin (20), moved around the stage and even to runways in four directions and sang enthusiastically dripping with perspiration.

At the first MC, Yonghwa said “Today’s live concert is our 2nd album “392” release live, and also our last live in indie activities. Feeling both distressing and glad, I have strange feelings, but I really appreciate many people coming. Today, during this stage, I’ll devote all of myself to you, everyone!
Next, surrounded by screams, Jonghyun said and shouted, “Only because it’s the last indie (concert), I’m ‘Kanmuryo’ (in the fullness of my heart), and my heart is fulfilled with various feelings that I cannot put into words. We’ll stake our lives here today! So, let’s play together with great enthusiasm, everyone!!

As their hit songs followed in a row, such as “I’m A Loner”, “Intuition” and “LOVE”, the arena became hot with excitement. Then they turned to play ballad songs and attracted the audience such various performances. They also delighted fans with the stage that turned around 360-degrees.

During encore, Yonghwa said “Because this is our last indie live concert today, we’ve prepared a surprising present.” and revealed their Japan major debut song “In My Head” for the first time live. Though audience was absolutely delighted and went crazy, they played only the first part (from the beginning to the first chorus).

At their comment “Today only up to this”, audience screamed “Ehh~?”, but they said “Please listen to the full-size song at our major debut event.” In fact, however, they prepared a bigger present afterward.
Winter tour in December is decided.” Minhyuk made a surprise announcement. Starting with Zepp Sendai on December 4th, they will hold concerts in Nagoya, Osaka, and at National Yoyogi Stadium 1st Gymnasium on 16th. With the immediate decision of tour, they will get off to a bright start as a big band.

Before the last song, Jonghyun said “We have come here thanks to you, everyone. We know more than anyone that we are still immature. But we’d like to share our future capability with everyone. Even after our major debut, this feeling will never change. Finish of CNBLUE’s first act, then start of the second act. Today we are the happiest to raise the curtain with everyone together.” Getting a lot of applause, they finished the concert with “”.

Until now, there are so many KPOP Idols doing activities in Japan, CNBLUE is not an idol, and I think there’s difference between Japan and Korea. What will you do from now on?
YH : Since 2009, we already did many street performances and club performances during indies period, at that time we had put on our real ability. Just because we make major debut, we won’t change our passion. We’ll keep learning about music and take a challenge to all genre music while putting our real ability.
